    Judy Astley is an author I have been reading since she published her first novel in 1994 They are generally an enjoyable light romance chick lit type novel nothing brain stretching but usually fun This one made me laugh but I think it is far from the best of her novels The protagonist Jay works her way through a selection of diet options whilst awaiting the imminent return of her cousin Delphine from Australia Jay lives in a chaotic household with her husband three children and almost son in law She owns together with a friend a successful cleaning company Jay has always been envious of Delphine not just her thinness but the fact that she was the indulged daughter who had everything she could ever want as a child Having lived in Australia for many years Delphine is returning to the UK to marry her third husband It is the imminent return of her perfect cousin that makes Jay decide that she will diet and become like her well organised and most importantly thin She tries them all High Carb No ProteinHigh Protein No Carb High Fibre Wheat Free Fat Free Grapefruit Atkins Conley and so on with a variety of successes and failuresThis novel might not have much going for it as a story but what it does provide is well written humour

    I really enjoyed the first Judy Astley book that I read which was Every Good Girl I thought that the author was witty and clever The book also really held me from the first page I feel like this book really let her down The whole of the storyline is in the blurb The storyline was under developed I thought it was extreemly weak Nothing really happened and anything that did happen was just a repeat of what had already happened in the story As a result I found the main character Jay the mother rather dull and uninteresting to read about Her children who supported the main plot were interesting to me because they're storylines were building I just found Jay plain borring to read about because I read about this sort of stuff before and I found her uite annoying how she had no will power And that's not someone who I want to read about If I want to read about a character with no will power I'll read Confessions of a ShopaholicThere were good aspects of the book I kept reading the book and finished it relatively uick It just wasn't as well flowing as some of the books I've read before I thought it was funny in places and the story had a good moral to it I wouldn't reccomend reading this particular book by Judy Astley though

    Jay runs a business and a family With this double taxation it is understandable that her life her looks and her wardrobe isn't as perfect as those from her Cousin Delphine who is coming home after being in Australia for years She asks Jay to organise everything for her return and although Jay doesn't like to be bossed around by Delphine she does it anyway She is a nice person sigh But Jay has one resolution to lose some dress sizes before Delphines arrival she doesn't want to look like the ugly stepsister Several ways of loosing weight are tried out by her Relatively short book and the story was somehow weird especially the side stories aboutwith the kids Didn't like it that much Only thing that was a bit interesting were the different methods how the protagonist wants to loose weight I never did a particular diet cause I don't really believe in any of that My rule is always eat less and not so much chocolate and do sports And it really works if you don't give up too fast

    Since childhood Jay has felt inferior to her cousin Delphine who she hasn't seen for years Now Delphine is due back from Australia to marry and airline pilot so Jay embarks on a series of diets and tries to get her unruly family to behave themselvesI found this uite funny in places but it does annoy me that women's fiction so often is based round women thinking they're fat and finding their hangups with food a topic of comedy Size Matters is a pleasant enough read but leaves a bit of a nasty taste in the mouth afterwards due to the subject matter
